Additional Information

Organic Structure Analysis is an ideal text for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in organic spectroscopy. It provides students with the background necessary to effectively apply spectroscopic data in establishing features of molecular structure. Unique in its coverage, it is the only text that emphasizes strategies, interpretation, modern techniques, and problem solving. The text's major aim is to show how spectra can be efficiently examined in order to identify a molecule's major structural elements. It focuses on four techniques which are used on a day-to-day basis by most organic chemists: nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), mass spectroscopy (MS), infrared (IR), and ultraviolet-visible (UV-VIS). Each chapter provides different perspectives on using spectroscopic data in a step-by-step process to establish structural features such as an overall carbon framework; the presence and location of functional groups; the regiochemistry and stereochemistry of substituents; and, finally, the absolute stereochemistry of chiral centers. Recent advances in NMR and MS have changed the way these components are introduced and used in organic spectroscopy courses. Unlike similar texts, this book provides ample, up-to-date coverage of the latest developments in NMR and MS techniques.
Organic Structure Analysis adopts a practical approach to the subject which emphasizes building experience; the authors recognize that a combination of problem solving, access to data from models, and understanding the rules of spectral interpretation helps students to build expertise in structure determination from spectra. It outlines elements of theory, but with an emphasis on those directly relevant to spectral interpretation. The text is divided into three major sections; the first section provides extensive coverage of each of the individual methods, the second section illustrates how the strategies of organic structure are actually applied in ten problems whose solutions are provided, and the third section consists of fifty unsolved problems which range from simple monofunctional compounds to complex natural products.

This was the course textbook we had to get for the class. The whole class struggled with this book. The way it is structured is confusing and I particularly hate the way it is written. I managed to pass the class but it was not thanks to this book. I read previous reviews recommending the Silverstein textbook and I second that thought (I bought it as a back-up and it was a lot less complicated).
I take a spectroscopy graduate course, we use this as textbook. I found there are lots of typos in this book, some are even in the figures and schemes! This book misleads me and makes me frustrated, I don't like it. If your teacher tells you to use this one as textbook for course, just argue that it is not a good one.
The book often had mistakes and issues in the problems provided. Also I felt that the way the material was presented sometimes led to confusion. Over all the book is useful as a learning tool but there are better options out there. I borrowed a different textbook from a friend and actually had more success learning the course material that was designed from this book.
